Mass in San Marco

by Billy16

I know it is a little late to be posting this question, however can anyone advise me as to whether there ant restricitions as to attending mass in either Basilica di San Marco or Santa Maria della Salute.

I know there are many tours but was wondering about purely worship.

We arrive in Venice tomorrrow!

Regards,

Billy

If you are going to either church to worship, I would say check at each church for their scheduled Masses. Most churches have daily Masses. It may be very early in the morning, but that would be a great way to start the day. Something to do before breakfast.

Many Thanks.

You will find the mass times for the Basilica in English here:

I am sure there will be no restrictions per se.

Will see what I can find for SM della Salute.

Sundays and public holidays at 11am and 4pm on other days for SM d Salute.

We went to mass at St Mark's. This one was at 16.00 hours but the hours are posted. Great way to see the cathedral without the masses (sorry about the pun; I mean, hordes), and a fabulous way to see the mosaics. Don't forget to look at the floor.

Generally churches encourage people to attend their services. The only restrictions we've ever noted have been regarding clothing. Especially in Italy, you are requested not to wear shorts, very short skirts, tank tops or bare arms and men are requested to remove their hats in the church. This is standard etiquette and is often enforced by ushers.

Enjoy your trip.

Travel Tips for Venice

San Giorgio Maggiore Orientale Lighthouse

by grandmaR

Lighthouses are my favorite things about a lot of places, and Venice is no exception.

This is supposed to be an active lighthouse, although the light is only up about 33 feet. It is an octagonal tower with a gallery which is made from white stone and is unpainted. It is on San Giorgio Maggiore island across the Grand Canal from St. Mark's Square. A breakwater protects the marina on the north, and the lighthouse is western of two identical towers at the ends of the breakwater. I don't know if the east tower has been used as a lighthouse.

The rest of these pictures were taken from St. Mark's Bell Tower and from various boats/water buses.

Do a pub crawl. We followed...

by Paladin857

Do a pub crawl. We followed the one outlined by Rick Steves. It was an experience we will never forget. We ate and drank our way in the Venician night, along the way making friends with others who followed the same route and talking to locals. We ended an magnificent evening by sharing a gondola ride and wine with some of our new friends.

The Scuola Grande di S. Giovanni Evangelista

by Aggeliki

Built at the end of the fourteenth century, this building is instantly eye-catching because of the large front entrance, which opens into a small courtyard. The construction is a mix of styles from the fourteenth to the late-fifteenth century. Renovated in the seventeenth century, the hall of San Giovanni was built at that time, as was the monumental, splendid staircase and the Oratory of the Cross, which is next door. Nowadays, this is mostly used as a concert hall and can only be visited with a guide on Sundays and Mondays.

If you need medical treatment

by Trekki

Now apart from the fact that the hospital’s southern entrance portal is a sight of its own, the main hospital of Venezia – L’Ospedale Civile – is the best option in case you need medical assistance. During my wanderings through the city of course I wanted to see how medical system “works” here, in a city on water.
Their emergency admission (somehow pronto soccorso - first aid) is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and helps with everything. The hospital is surrounded by water at two sides, and the location directly at the (northern) Canale delle Fondamenta Nuove makes it very easy to set out quickly with ambulance boats in case they are called. They have all kinds of different ambulance boats on Rio dei Medicanti (the name already signifies that the hospital is located here since ages) and I always thought/think how very much skillful Veneziano medicians must be to perform all kinds of first aid work on a swaying ship.
Oh, for fans of Commissario Brunetti: of course this is the hospital of books and movies, and whre the autopsies are performed :-)

Ospedale Civile is in Castello 6777, at campo SS Giovanni e Paolo.
Phone number: 041 – 52 94 111 or through the general emergency number 0041 – 5230 000 (always dial the city code, even if you are calling from a phone in the city).
Other hospitals are on Lido and in Mestre. If you only need medical supplies – there are pharmacies – farmacia – all over the city. They are signified by a green cross. Usually, pharmacies are open during the typical business hours with a longer lunch break. In case you need one during a weekend or evening – there are signs in the windows about which one close by would be open.
Bring prescriptions in case you need to get supply of important ones. It could be wise to have them translated back home into Italian, or at least have the active ingredient written on them somewhere.

It is easy to find Murano...

by eitakorlando

It is easy to find Murano glass because it is sold everywhere. In one store, I made the mistake of picking up a figurine and the sales person started yelling at me. I left embarrassed and annoyed. I am careful, but don't touch anything.
